Monogram Coffee Mug

anthropologie inspired monogram mug

If your mom is a regular coffee or tea drinker, she will love waking up with a pretty monogrammed mug like this one by Andrea at The Cottage Market. Andrea simply added an initial to a decorative mug with a porcelain paint marker and then cured it per package directions. She says, “Add some yummy tea bags…some fresh coffee beans…maybe a vintage spoon and wrap pretty…a perfect gift for anyone!”

Your sun-loving mom will look fab walking across the beach with this stylish chevron tote from Jaime at That’s My Letter. Jaime’s tote features a fun navy chevron print with fuchsia monogram, drop cloth canvas lining, and rope handle. In all honesty, I would choose Jamie’s bag hands-down over her inspiration from Pottery Barn Teen!

Now I know I am not the only Momma around who likes dangly earrings. The longer the better I say! Over at Infarrantly Creative you can see how I made, not one, but six pairs of pretty chandelier drop earrings for only $15 total. That’s two pairs of earrings for Mom, Mom-in-law, and… yourself! HA!

Newspaper Print Dress

Amy from Mod Podge Rocks used a little color to mimic a newspaper print dress found in the Ballard Designs catalog.  I love the paper she chose! It reminds me of a vintage dress worn in the 50s.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Art

When Mandy from We Three Mothers wanted The Very Hungry Caterpillar artwork for her son’s bedroom but couldn’t afford the price tag, she teamed up with her son to DIY for less. They simply purchased a canvas and some tissue paper and then spent the morning cutting and gluing together. Kids are generally pretty oblivious to wall décor, but you know Mandy’s son will always love this special art he made with his mommy!

Tree Stump Tables

As an oil painter, Oksana from Sparrow’s Haven constantly finds herself seeking inspiration from nature, specifically trees. Therefore, it seems only fitting that she would want to bring the object of her fascination indoors. Oksana created these natural stump tables from an oak tree her husband and father-in-law cut down in the woods surrounding her home. I love how she utilized the hollowed center of the larger stump as a planter!

Ruffled Stripe Pillow Cover

You all know I love a good pillow DIY, and Javeriya from Believe & Inspire brings it with this cover that’s full of fluff and frills. Javeriya was able to customize the colors of her pillow so they fit into the theme of the room to perfection… and all for the low low price of about $4!

Milk Glass Vases

After weeks of mason jar projects due to her finger injury, Linda from It All Started With Paint felt it was time to mix things up a bit with a vase project. Linda transformed a passel of dollar store vases into West Elm ceramic vase look-a-likes with just some inexpensive acrylic paint. I love how the brightly colored tissue paper flowers pop in the crisp white vases. The great news about having to use paper flowers with these vases is that your flowers will stay bright and beautiful forever. Well… at least until your kids get a hold of them {wink}!
